1964 “Monts owed much to Ian Brewer”.
Claremont beat Perth in the Preliminary Final by 9 points at Subiaco before 29,521 fans. Claremont only had won 4 games the previous year and finished on the bottom. The run this year appeared stopped when Claremont had a sluggish start and 5 goal leeway. 4 goals to Ian Brewer put Claremont back in the game before half time. John Fairbrass gave an outstanding display as did Ian Brayshaw.
